Jyotisar - Bhagvad Gita

Jyotisar is a small town near Kurukshetra. It is revered as the place where Lord Krishna delivered the sermon of the Bhagvad Gita to Arjuna, even as the vast armies of the Pandavas and Kauravas stood facing each other, ready for the terrible 18 day Mahabharata war that was to begin.

The person most responsible for the rejuvenation of the Sanatan Dharma, aka Hinduism, Adi Sankara, has a small temple dedicated to him at Jyotisar.

There is a separate banyan tree, more than 800 years old, also at the site.
